Tsundoku Bingo Announcement and Sign-Up

If you’re anything like me, you have quite a few books on your TBR pile. Personally, I have books here there and everywhere. And at last count, although not yet complete, I have about 100 books that have yet to be read.

So, if I read one book a month it would take a minimum of 8 years to get through my TBR pile. But here’s the problem I keep buying books and therefore the TBR pile keeps growing.

And since I have an insatiable need to buy books with good intentions to read them, I thought I would start Tsundoku Bingo. In case you’re not familiar with the term here’s the definition

So for this bingo we are going to jump into our TBR piles feet first. This is a no pressure challenge. And if enough people sign up I’ll add some challenges, a Twitter chat and maybe a prize at the end.

You don’t need a blog to sign up. If you don’t have one, just reply in the comments that you’re in. If you do have a blog or other social media, please create a sign up post and link it with the handy-dandy Linky below. Use the #TsundokuBingo

The Rules:

♦ There will be a new bingo board every quarter:

  • January/February/March
  • April/May/June
  • July/August/September
  • October/November/December

♦ You know how bingo works – get 5 across, horizontal, or diagonal or if you want just work your way through the board during the quarter

♦ Sorry, only one book per square

♦ Don’t have a blog. No problem. Just read and come back to the weekly Update post to let us know how you’re coming along

♦ And yes the books you read for Tsundoku bingo can overlap with other reading challenges

    I will definitely participate – it sounds super fun, and I have too many unread books on my shelves… and floor.

    I’m in! Not only will the challenge help whittle down my TBR list, it can also help my ‘decrease spending’ goal for 2018 by getting me to only read books that I already bought.
